Update: Lake Bluff and Phase 3

There's a lot to keep up with. This is what you must know:

  • Our region has progressed to a less restrictive phase of the Restore Illinois plan based on improving COVID-19 health outcomes.

  • While we are safer than we were on March 21, we are not safe.

  • You are required to wear a cloth face covering or mask in public places where you cannot remain six feet from others. If in doubt, wear your face covering.

  • COVID-19 is actively being transmitted in our community. You should continue to take precautions.

Relaxed Rules in Phase 3 of Restore Illinois:

On May 29th, Governor Pritzker formally moved our region to Phase 3 under the Restore Illinois plan. This sign of progress means that a number of COVID-19 related restrictions are relaxed in our community. Changes include:

  • Social gatherings and many types of outdoor activities will be permitted in groups of 10 or fewer. (These are still possibilities to transmit the virus, especially if people ignore social distancing.)

  • Thousands of people will return to work and businesses will reopen, including retailers, offices, manufacturers, physical fitness facilities, barbershops and salons. (People who can work from home should continue to do so.)

  • Travel can resume subject to IDPH and CDC guidelines.

  • Limited child care and summer programs can open.

  • Bars and restaurants can open outdoor seating.

Some things haven't changed. You should continue to:

  • Stay at least six feet from members of other households.

  • Wear a face covering when in public.

  • Refrain from handshakes, hugs, and other physical contact.

  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds, especially when leaving or returning home.

  • Stay home if you are feeling ill.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces often (daily at home).
